A Quote by Robert Grudin on awareness, drama, creativity, ceremony, energy, and borders

Great drama, like the energy implicit in every atom, is eternally around and within us, but liberated only by coincidence, ceremony, creativity, periods reaching completion, pressures reaching the bursting point, and the simple but painful cultivation of awareness.

I prithee gentle friend,
Let thy fair wisdom, not thy passions, sway
In this uncivil and unjust extent
Against thy peace.

A Quote by Louisa May Alcott on love, life, hope, health, drama, books, and reading

There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.

Louisa May Alcott (1832 - 1888)

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on co-creation, master of our destiny, and drama

"Let us never, never forget that we are the masters of our destiny. No one in all the universes writes our script. We do that, in co-creation with our brothers. As we rewrite our script, our brother must do likewise or leave the stage of our drama."

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on pity, worry, awareness, and drama

Our physical organs (and this cannot be too often repeated) are animal forces, which will quite naturally obey a man who is prepared to command them.  They are there to serve him, not to enslave him.  But the ego is so lazy that it makes him quite glad to abdicate this power in return for the secret satisfaction of pitying his own sufferings, or attracting attention to his pathetic case.  Most of our pathological conditions are aggravated by this unconfessed indulgence.  The same applies to our personal dramas and daily worries; we should have the courage to admit that they feed largely on the pity of others, and on our own.  In most cases, what would be left of them if we passed them over in total silence?
